press release will be released on behalf of PGDG ? So, any contacts
will be considered sort of official ? There so many unclear questions,
so I tried to avoid them - publish well established regional addresses.
btw, what do you mean "press contact" ? I don't remember you asked me
for contact. I always have my contact (for decades) in my signature, 
for example. We have well known postgresql resources in Russia and 
I never heard Nickolay's company. Do we bless his company to be 
our (PGDG) contact ?  I'm against casual companies to be my representative
in my country !
